Lycian Way: The Anatolian plateau viewed the rise and fall of many civilizations on it, the most enigmatic one being the Lycians. Tekke Peninsula was their kingdom with cliff tombs and sarcophagi which are still a worth seeing view of these hills above Mediterranean Sea.

Ephesus: This is site of classic ruins of marble of a once great city Ephesus, which was capital of province of Asia of Roman Empire, which was largest metropolis of the entire empire.

Its abandoned roads were once clad with toga hordes with beauty of wildflowers growth among headless statues and flagstones. Ephesus daily opens at 8.00am and there is also a museum offering exhibition of culture and ancient history of this once glorious city.
